Maybe, just maybe, this is the start of a crack in the wall of MS 
dominance in the corporate desktop market. if Google can do it, maybe 
RIM can too.  And HP, and IBM, and Micro..well, nevermind that last 
one.  But I expect this will be the first time a multi-thousand employee 
worldwide company goes all non-MS I think.
